Quote:I really dont like the idea of noise coming out of my mount-telescope, especially in the summer months because I dont want neighbors peaking at 2am and wondering what the heck is this guy doing??Can someone tell me which of these telescopes would make the least noise when tracking or slewing? Which least noisy mount, for around 500$, used or new, would be a good buy for someone who wants to do mostly visual with an occasional deep sky astrophoto?1- Nexstar 8SE2- CPC 9253- Meade LXD75 mount w/9.254- CGE-5 9.255- CGE-6 9.256- CGEM 9.257- Orion XX12GT8- Orion XX14GTPS> I read the LX75 has a Quiet Slew mode, do the others have that?Thanks.
